In the beginning ...
During the years prior to 2000 a number of prominent Senior Golfers in England and Wales had been working toward the formation of organised golf for golfers over the age of 55 years.
In November 2000, at a meeting at Trevose Golf Club, it was decided, by about forty golfers who were participating in an unofficial inter-regional match, to form an Association to provide this form of golf under the proposed banner of the English Senior Golf Association.
Four of the main protagonists in the initial stages of the proposals were
Donald Holmes of Parkstone GC
Bryan Evans of Littlestone GC
John Loader of Beau Desert GC
Grahame Yule of Royal Lytham & St Annes GC
and these four Senior Golfers encouraged interest in their various regions in England.
There are 10+ Regional Championships which culminate in a National Final at Trevose Golf Club in November each year.
Members can enter as many events as they wish. Prior to the National Final the Inter-Regional Foursomes are held on the preceding three days.

Nigel Evans led from start to finish to win by 7 shots at TrevoseGC from Ian Attoe who secured a succesful defence of the Scratch order of merit. Phil Bramall who was runner up in the Scratch OOM also skippered the South East team to victory in the Inter Regional foursomes even after losing 3.5-2.5 on the final day to a fast finishing South West team Captained by Steve Leahey. Adrian Donkersley`s Midlands team finished 3rd just ahead of the North side led by Nigel Clowes. A fantastic week of Golf made all the better by weather forecasts that never quite became as bad as promised. See you all next year.

Captain Billy Mitchell lead his team of 12 to a comprehensive victory over the Swedish team led by Bo Ryden over two days at a sun drenched Littlestone GC. However although the result appears one sided many matches were very close and all were played in a fantastic spirit and with great camaraderie between all players.
